Stand firm, Alma Mater, 
Through all the years to come. 
In days of youth and beauty 
Thy halls have been our home. 
In times of preparation 
Great lessons didst thou teach.

The stars we'll strive to reach. 

Lead on, Alma Mater, 
Thy sons to higher ways, 
Give light and truth unto them 
For all their coming days. 
To thee we'll give all honor. 
Our hopes abide in thee, 
For thou, Alma Mater 
Hast made us ever free.

Memphis State s 
Greatest Decade 

Ten years ago, in 1946, J. M. "Jack" Smith 
became president of Memphis State College, an 
institution at that time having an enrollment of 
1,500. Since then, Memphis State has grown in 
all directions — buildings have been more than 
doubled, the faculty has been enlarged to 200 
members, the enrollment has passed the 3,500 
figure and the institution has gained in prestige 
throughout the South and the nation. 

President Smith came to Memphis State well 
prepared to place the college on the map. He 
came up through the one-room, one-teacher 
school in rural Hardin County to head Tennessee 
Polytechnic Institute, to direct instruction for 
Memphis City Schools and to serve at one time 
as Tennessee Commissioner of Education. All 
of these roles served to prepare President Smith 
to take the helm of this institution which had 
so much to offer and which had so far to go. 

In the way of buildings during this period we 
can mention two large additions to the Adminis- 
tration Building and the addition to Science 
Hall. A new men's dormitory, named in honor 
of Grover C. Hayden, was completed and an- 
other is on the drawing boards and will be 
ready soon. 

The Student Center and the Cafeteria were 
completed and the "Den," formerly housed in 
the Administration Building, gave way to new 
offices and classrooms, The new gymnasium was 
completed; the Training School enlarged. The 
Girls' Dormitory was remodeled and a new addi- 
tion started. The library took on a new wing, 
plus air-conditioning. Even the auditorium re- 
ceived new seats. 



18 




Additional departments of in- 
struction have been created, more 
teachers employed and class offer- 
ings increased to better serve the 
students. 

No one man can receive credit 
for all these gains, but on the 
other hand, all who have witnessed 
the tremendous growth in prestige 
and influence of Memphis State, 
recognize the guiding influence of 
President Smith. 

We know that students of the 
future will be forever grateful for 
the fine example he set. for the 
achievements he brought about for 
the college and for the influence 
he has had on each of us.

DR. BASCOM H. STORY 

Director, School of Education and Graduate School 



A Growing College 
in a Growing Area 

In comparison with many institutions in the field of educa- 
tion, Memphis State is comparatively young. On September 
15, 1912, the West Tennessee State Normal School opened 
its doors for the first students in Memphis, with the obligation 
to train teachers to supply a need that existed even during 
those days. 

More specific laws were passed by the State of Tennessee 
and in the Act of 1925 it was declared that the function of 
such colleges in the state should be to prepare teachers for 
public schools. Memphis State, then, has for many years 
supplied trained elementary and high school teachers, in- 
structors and supervisors in various subjects and principals 
and superintendents of county and city schools. 

As educational needs in the state became' broader, the 
name was changed by the State Legislature in 1941 to 
Memphis State College and the institution began to offer 
subjects generally included in a liberal arts curriculum as 
well as many other subjects which are demanded by the 
state's public school system. 

By 1950 the college, located on 80 acres in the eastern 
part of Memphis, had grown to such an extent it was felt to 
be necessary to reorganize the school in order to serve more 
effectively the students of West Tennessee and the surround- 
ing areas. 

So at that time four schools were created: School of Arts 
and Sciences, School of Business Administration, School of 
Education and the Graduate School. 

The major objective of the School of Arts and Sciences is 
to provide students a well-rounded and liberal education, by 
introducing them to those major fields of human interest 
included in the humanities, social sciences and natural 
sciences. 

A professional training unit of the college, The School of 
Business Administration, was organized to prepare people to 
make a good living in the world of commerce. 

The School of Education directs the preparations of future 
teachers, provides professional service to public schools and 
carries on a continuing program of educational research. 

The Graduate School has served to advance the training of 
graduates of all these schools, as well as graduates of other 
recognized institutions.

R.O.T.C. 

Since 1951 the Air Force Reserve Offi- 
cers Training Corps has played a vital role 
in campus activities. Participating in Vic- 
tory Day parades and at Homecoming 
ceremonies, the well-directed units have 
been a source of pride to the college. 

A capable staff of officers and enlisted 
personnel direct the unit. The rifle team 
has brought national honors to the local 
unit and the drill team has presented ex- 
cellent examples of precision marching to 
the public. 

This year for the first time the. men 
joined in intra-squadron athletic contests. 

Cadet Colonel Larry Austin is in com- 
mand.

Arabesque Club 

The Arabesque Club is open to all students 
of Memphis State interested in any form of 
music. A scholarship, presented to a deserv- 
ing person who desires to major in music, is 
sponsored by the organization. 

The major event of the year is the annual 
opera workshop which includes a program 
of operatic arias by members of the club 
Donations received are used for the scholar- 
ship fund. 



OFFICERS— Standing, left to right: Becky Kaufman, Sec- 
retary; Joyce Reaves, Treasurer; Betty Rutledge, President; 
and Walter Dugan, Vice President. 



Members gather in one of the music lecture rooms for their DeSoto picture. 




Sock and Buskin 

Sock and Buskin is an organization for 
students interested in drama. Its purpose is 
to stimulate interest in all dramatic activities 
of the college, and to develop an appreciation 
of good theatrical productions on the part of 
the student body. 

The club recently organized a new series 
of programs called Green Room Dramas 
which are student directed and managed. 




OFFICERS — Seated: Joan Smith, President. Standing, left to right: Martha 
Wallace, Treasurer; Allen Hates, Vice President; and Renee Haffner. Secretary. 



Members of Sock and Buskin use some of the stage settings for comfort as they are photographed. 





A tense moment sees Allen Bates and 
Harvey Dice looking on as Blanche Pope 



fights for life. 



Professor Eugene Bence's production of "The Enchant- 
ed" was indeed a fine beginning for the MSC Theatre's 
1955-56 season. The play, written by Jean Giraudoux, 
is a comedy of a charming young lady's love for a 
"ghost" in provincial France — only the "ghost" turns out 
not to be a real ghost at all. At the outset of the play, 
the small French village where the action occurs is all 
upset because of the actions of the mysterious ghost. The 
Inspector, skillfully played by Allen Bates, arrives on 
the scene with all the answers, or so he thinks. Presently, 
a tender romance comes to the attention of the audience 
involving Blanche Pope, as Isabel, and The Supervisor, 
portrayed by Harvey Dice. Madcap leads to merriment 
with the antics of two "Executioners" and the curtain is 
rung down on a note of happiness. 



The Memphis State Colloge Theatre play- 
bill for Jean Giraudoux' "The Enchanted," 
directed by Eugene Bence with technical di- 
rection by Bradford White.

"Little Girls," in our pro- 
duction are clockwise, left 
to right: Billie Farmer, 
Jean Guyton, Martha 
Owen, Ellen Robinson, 
Phoebe Glass, and Becky 
Kaufman. 




The second production of the Memphis State College Theatre 
this year is a play described by the critics as " . . . one of the 
greatest English psychological studies of murder ..." ever 
written. Its author is Emlyn Williams. The story, built around 
the actions of a psychopathic murderer named Dan, played by 
Harvey Dice, is as stark and suspenseful as the author could 
make it. The opening scene takes place in the High Court of 
English Justice as Dan is sentenced to death by the Lord Chief 
Justice. The rest of the play is in the form of flashbacks to 
the events leading up to the death sentence. In these flashbacks, 
we see the murder of Mrs. Bramson, played by Diane Parrish, 
and the love of Olivia, Joan Helton, both of which tend to 
only complicate the plight of our murderer. Truly then, this 
is a brilliant study of a murderers innermost thoughts. 




Dan is startled as Olivia enters the room 
after he has murdered Mrs. Bramson.

Rumpelstiltskin 





Complete Cast of "Rumplestiltskin" 



Martha Wallace as the Queen and Renee Haffner as Rum- 
pelstiltskin. 



Somebody said, "Let's try something new!" Well, we did. And that something new was the 
MSC Children's Theatre sponsored jointly by the Speech and Drama department and the Associa- 
tion of Childhood Education, Memphis State Chapter. The first production was the beloved fairy 
tale "Rumpelstiltskin," directed by Dr. Don C. Streeter, Chairman of MSC's Drama Department. 
Designed for children of the First, Second, and Third grades, the show was just as much fun to 
produce as it was to watch and was presented on November 4 and twice November 5. The kids liked 
it so much that another performance was played on Monday, November 7. Wjih additional enter- 
tainment, the show ran about an hour and was a smashing success. Some of the members of the 
double cast were: Floyd Herzog, Marvin Smith, Robert Schneller, Perry Wilbur, Gail Howard, 
Ann Rush Erwin, Beverly Morton, June Carpenterjoe Gruen, Geraldine Dawson, Iris Hopps, Mar- 
tha Owen, Martha Wallace, Renee Haffner, Betty-Erie Pouncey Rhodes, Jane Melton and Martha 
Lewis. Brad White and Eugene Bence were technical directors. 



The Green Room . . . 



Rumpelstiltskin wasn't the only innovation around here. What we call in the 
Speech and Drama Department our "Green Room Dramas" moved out of the Green 
Room and on to our stage in fine fashion. Perhaps we ought to tell you the story 
from the beginning though. Last year a group of actors decided they'd have a few 
short shows on their own hook with their own directors as well as student actors. The 
idea caught on and flowered into a prosperous enterprise which brought out talent 
that hadn't been discovered before. It was found to be an excellent "drama work- 
shop." When the shows are staged, all the magic of a big production is in the air 
and the interest of both the audience and the players is as keen as ever. 

Last year there were eight Green Room Dramas and this year two productions were 
staged. 

A touch of Oriental Theatre came to the MSC stage in November as Marvin 
Smith's production of "The Toy Heart" was featured in the first of this year's 
series. The second show saw Erwin Shaw's gripping drama "Bury the Dead" ... a 
story of dead men who refused to be buried. Experimental theatre at its best is seen 
in the Green Room Dramas.

Each year. The Memphis Shakespearean Festival 
brings to Memphis the finest of Shakespeare's works. 
This year's program was highlighted by the presenta- 
tion of "Macbeth," under the direction of Eugene 
Bence with Brad White handling the technical pro- 
duction. Not confined exclusively to MSC students, 
this years show featured a TV executive, salesman, 
and a choir director, only to mention a few of the 
performers. 

The Coterie, national women's service organiza- 
tion, again sponsored the ticket sales and capacity 
crowds were on hand every night. Through Coterie 
scholarships, many of our young actors are able to 
attend College. Other Festival activities included 
Shakespeare in the movies, lectures and in music. 
The 1956 production . . . ""The Merchant of Venice."

sion. They are, left to right: Mrs. Virginia Blackburn,

successful years. At her left is Mary Frances 
Brown. Back, left to right. Milton Webb and 
Edgar Gillock. 



The Forensic Department, made up of 24 Memphis 
State students and two faculty members, traveled approxi- 
mately 5,000 miles to attend numerous tournaments dur- 
ing the school year. In the process, the group won more 
awards than in any previous year. 

First trip was to Tuscaloosa, where the students parti- 
cipated in the Alabama Discussion Tournament to win 
one superior award. Their second tournament was the 
Regional Tau Kappa Alpha Tournament at the University 
of Tennessee at Knoxville. Here they competed with thir- 
teen colleges and universities to tie South Carolina for 
second place in the overall event. 

Then, after much preparation, they traveled to Ada, 
Oklahoma, to participate with thirty-three schools in the 
East Central State College Tournament. Again they won 
many top honors, including a Sweepstakes Excellent in 
Junior Women's Forensic Activities. 

Their final trip of the first semester took them to Jack- 
son, Mississippi, for the Millsaps Tournament, where they 
entered the quarter finals. 

During the second semester trips were arranged to the 
tournament in Cookeville for the Tennessee State compe- 
tition; the North-South Tournament at Morgantown, West 
Virginia; the Glendy Burke Tournament at Tulane in 
New Orleans, and the Southern Speech Association Tour- 
nament at Mississippi Southern in Hattiesburg.

Huge snow flakes drifted onto MSC's 
campus in January, providing picture- 
book scenes like these. 

The first heavy snow in several years 
also disrupted winter semester's final 
exams. Although students were off a 
day, Bill Williamson, Tiger Rag spon- 
sor, photographed the campus while the 
snow was fresh. Mr. Williamson, who is 
from Iowa, thought he would escape 
snow in the "sunny" South.

Delta Sig 



DELORES GAY 

The International Fraternity of Delta Sigma Pi was founded at New York Uni- 
versity. Its founders joined together for the common purpose of fostering and pro- 
moting the study of commerce and business ethics and practices among students of 
business administration. 

On April 9, 1949, the Gamma Zeta chapter received its charter and place among 
the 89 chapters of the fraternity. Through the co-operation of the fraternity and the 
Business Administration Department, the fraternity has been able to sponsor exhibits 
and field trips. 

Our social activities are held regularly through the year and highlighted by our 
annual Rose Ball. During the Rose Ball some co-ed is crowned "The Rose of Delta 
lgma.

We, the Seniors of 1956, find ourselves facing a challenging future and a changing world. 
For sixteen years we have studied to prepare ourselves for this moment. We have been taught not 
only by textbook and manual, but by faith, hope, and love. Our prayer is that we have learned well 
the lessons taught to us. 

We leave Memphis State with heads held high — proud of our achievements — and courageous smiles 
— ready to take our place in the intriguing future before us. We will meet the responsibilities of to- 
morrow as we did those of yesterday, with an open mind and a firm belief in what we think is right. 
We know all things are possible if people only believe in and work for them. 

We cannot know what the future has in store for us, but we will remember always that part of 
our past centered at Memphis State. The friends, the activities, the classes, the smiles and the tears 
—all will become cherished memories, never to be forgotten. We have been a part of Memphis 
State, and Memphis State will always be a part of us.

We. as Juniors, have but one rung yet to go on the ladder of our college life. As a class we 
are overshadowed by the Seniors, Sophomores, and the Freshmen because we are small and because 
we are the middle men in college life, both socially and academically. Yet as individuals we rank as 
high as any Memphis State student, and we are proud that we have had the courage and fortitude to 
stay in college when many dropped out after a two-year period. 

We are proud of our individuality and our oneness as a class. We feel that we are achieving much, 
yet we realize our shortcomings. Upon completing our third year in college, we have set our standards, 
our ideals, and our goals. We have only to put them to use to benefit ourselves and mankind. 

We have weathered the storms of three years of college life and now we face the final step, the 
final year of prparation for our life's work. We become Seniors with pride and with the courage to 
face whatever may present itself to us next year.

OR JUST BETWEEN CLASSES

We, the Sophomores, Class of 1958, are the largest ever to be enrolled at Memphis State. 
Our large number represents a cross-section of college life found in every college community. We 
are an integrated part of Memphis State, but we remain in the background, and will stay there 
until, as Seniors, we have proven ourselves to be worthy of recognition. 

As a class we have had our share of happy times during this past year. Our class dance, which was 
held in the Spring, was topped off by the presentation of Mr. and Miss Fabulous and was a big 
success. 

We are now at the halfway mark in our college career. Some of us will leave Memphis State after 
the completion of two years of collegiate work. Many of us, however, will continue our education, 
and we look forward to our remaining years at Memphis State.

MEMPHIS 



STATE 



We, as Freshmen, have completed our first year of college life, our first year at Memphis 
State, after nine months of days and night crammed with worries and problems, fun and fellowship. 

We came in September from farms and towns, cities and suburbs, joining together to compose the 
Class of 1959. 

We were soon caught in the hustle and bustle of college life. We cheered at pep rallies, studied in 
the library and listened in reverence to the religious assemblies. We chose our class leaders, elected our 
queen in November and honored her and her court with a dance during that same month. 

Suddenly our first year at Memphis State has slipped by and left us not yet realizing that we are 
Sophomores. We have learned many things, some we'll forget, many we'll always remember. Through 
the interest of our instructors and through the encouragement of the Upperclassmen we have experi- 
enced one of the most profitable years of our life. 

We look forward to our next three years with hope and expectations, but we shall never forget 
our Freshman year at Memphis State!

Tassel, senior women's honorary group, is an 
organization which emphasizes leadership, scholar- 
ship, and service among women saudents. It was 
organized in the spring of 1950 to petition as 
soon as the proper requirements are met for mem- 
bership in Mortar Board, national senior women's 
honorary group. 

At the beginning of each year, Tassel members 
serve as Counsellors to freshman women students, 
and on registration day help all freshmen find 
their desired professor or subject. Tassel also 



sponsored a women's assembly at the beginning 
of the year. Fostering scholarship and leadership, 
Tassel sponsors an honorary group for freshman 
women, Lambda Delta. 

Membership selection is based on high scholas- 
tic averages. Among the projects sponsored by 
Tassel this year was its annual "Smarty Party," 
an evening forum, and distributing calendars to 
all organizations on the campus. Tassel's aim is 
to encourage college women to be better students 
and citizens at Memphis State.

Membership is limited to one percent of the male 
enrollment of the school. Only juniors and seniors 
are eligible, and they must rank scholastically in

Chi Beta Phi is a national honorary scientific fraternity. The object of the fraternity, 
as a whole, is to promote interest in science. The membership includes regular, honorary, 
and associate members. For a student to be elected for regular membership, he must 
have at least 3.0 average, and have passed ten semester hours in one of the four natural 
science fields and have taken an additional ten semester hours in one of the four natural 
science fields, not to exceed nine semester hours in any one field. 

The yearly activities consist of one meeting each month. There is also a banquet each 
semester when pledges are initiated. To add variety to the regularly set-up year, members 
occasionally visit some local point of scientific interest. 

Feeling that Chi Beta Phi also has an obligation of service to the Memphis State 
science departments, it cooperates in anything the departments stage, such as exhibits, sci- 
ence fairs, and field trips.

The Parade 




The prophecies of the winning 1955 Homecoming floats 
were fulfilled when Tennessee Tech found that they had seen 
quite enough of Pi Kappa Alpha's "Puddy Cat," and State 
had "Rocked 'Em" just as Sigma Kappa had predicted. 
Some 7,000 enthusiastic MSC rooters watched the trium- 
phant 20-12 game in Crump Stadium. Second place winners 
were Alpha Gamma Delta with "Whale 'Em" and Sigma Chi 
with "Lucky Tiger Tonic."

Greater Memphis State 

Like its fellow supporting organizations, the Tiger 
Club and the college Alumni Association, Greater Mem- 
phis State played a prominent role in the public support 
of Memphis State programs. 

Greater Memphis State advocates university status 
for Memphis State College. To that ultimate goal more 
than 300 members have dedicated their energies and 
financial support in behalf of the college's academic, 
cultural and athletic programs. 

The organization, under the leadership of Hal Dan- 
iel, Jr., gained more new members than in any previous 
year after the first of its activity. A membership drive 
was sponsored with a net gain of more than 100 new 
members. Berl Olswanger, a MSC alumnus, won the 
group's award for procuring the most new members. 

Greater Memphis State once again was active in 
its support of the season football ticket sale in conjunc- 
tion with the Le Bonheur Club and its fine group of 
workers. The organization also went all-out in support 
of the annual Shakespeare Festival, a cultural high- 
light in the city. 

Serving with Mr. Daniel are Robert Richards, Walter 
D. Evans and P. K. Seidman, vice presidents; Enoch 
Mitchell, treasurer; and C. Frank Scott, chaplain. 



Alumni Association 

The college alumni association experienced one of 
its most outstanding years of progress during 1955-56. 
Under the leadership of State Senator T. Robert Acklen 
for the second year, the alumni group continued in 
growth and progress in a "re-vitalized" movement. 

For the first time the association sponsored two ma- 
jor events during the year. The first was homecoming 
in November. In the spring semester the association 
held its annual banquet at which Brig. Gen. Herbert L. 
Grills, MSC's top-ranking alumnus in the military serv- 
ice, returned to address a group in excess of 300. 

The association once again kept the college's widely- 
scattered alumni informed through periodic issuance 
of "The Columns," the first full-fledged newspaper to 
be published by the alumni. 

Membership was at a peak never before realized as 
the group became active in all phases of supporting 
the college and its many programs. 

During Mr. Acklen's tenure his co-workers were C. 
L. McComas, and Ford Haynes, vice presidents; and 
Bob DeZonia, secretary-treasurer. 

Officers for the new year are Ed Humphreys, pres- 
ident; Jerry Burns and Bill Peeples, vice presidents; 
and Mr. DeZonia, secretary-treasurer.

The Tiger Club 



Organized for the major purpose of promoting and 
supporting a top program of athletics at Memphis State, 
the Tiger Club achieved notable success during the 
1955-56 school year. With a hard core of business and 
professional men — many not alumni of the college — 
the Tiger Club listed the following accomplishments: 

The group established an athletic scholarship fund 
which enabled the college to increase its number of 
approved scholarships. Members of the club made nu- 
merous public appearances at clubs, meetings and the 
like in vocal support of Memphis State's athletic pro- 
gram. The result of such appearances was the gaining 
of other members. 

The club also was interested in the maintenance of 
school spirit and to that end the organization secured 
the enthusiastic support of Cal Alley, staff cartoonist 
for The Commercial Appeal, in designing a decal for 
Tiger Club members and in preparing a school "battle 
flag" with a large Tiger emblazoned thereon. The flag 
accompanied the athletic teams on many of their trips 
and was waved enthusiastically by students and club 
members to the betterment of school spirit. 



The annual Blue-Gray intrasquad football game was 
sponsored by the club. Aonther move was the awarding 
of sweaters and numerals to the college's unbeaten 
freshman football team. The club aided in the purchase 
of smart blue sport jackets for the basketball team to 
be used as traveling togs. The college's name was em- 
broidered on the left breast pocket, and the dress of 
the team always drew favorable comment on road trips. 

An emergency fund from the sale of club decals was 
established to aid athletes in financial difficulty and 
several professional men in the club often volunteered 
their services. 

The club was outspoken in its support of university 
status for Memphis State.

Student Government 



The Student Government Association at Memphis State is the authoritative voice of the students 
and serves as a liaison agent between the students and the college administration. Its main charac- 
teristic is a check and balance system of government patterned after that of the United States. It 
consists of three branches. 

The Spring election of 1955 gave us our officers for the '55-'56 school year. Jerry Lowrie was 
elected President; Jere White, Vice President, and Carolyn Dellinger, Secretary. 

The Judicial branch held an organizational meeting and elected Jimmy Douglas Chief Justice. 

When school started in September the Student Government introduced legislation regarding the 
formation of a special committee to work toward the objective of achieving university status for our 
college. This committee was formed. Legislation was also passed lengthening the time permitted on 
mid-semester examinations. 

The Student Government Association handled many of the major events on campus. The election 
of the Homecoming Queen, judging of Homecoming floats and the Homecoming dance, the Student 
Popularity elections, the All-Student Dance, the chartering of busses to the Murray basketball 
game, and the planning of May Day were just a few of the events handled by the SGA.

Hostesses at the Dormitories 



Although the majority of the students at 
Memphis State College live within commut- 
ing distance and drive to and fro each day, 
there are still several hundred who live on 
the campus. 

The women reside in Mynders Hall. This 
dormitory is being enlarged to care for more 
students in the fall. 

Men students reside in Scates Hall and 
Hayden Hall. Another new dormitory is be- 
ing built to care for the increased enrollment. 

Fraternities and sororities each maintain 
rooms in the Student Center. Over these ac- 
tivities the Student Center hostess presides.

State Board of Education 

Memphis State, as well as the other state-supported colleges in Tennessee, comes under 
the direct supervision of the State Board of Education. Once each quarter this group con- 
venes in Nashville and decides the policies for the various institutions. 

There are three members from each of the three major divisions in Tennessee. West 
Tennessee is represented by W. R. Landrum, Ernest C. Ball and James Williams. Governor 
Frank Clement is an ex-officio member, while Dr. Quill E. Cope, commissioner of educa- 
tion, is also an exofficio member who serves as chairman. Members are appointed by the 
governor and serve for six years.

Crowds Greet the M.S.C. Tigers 




Thousands turned out to witness the football team under Coach Ralph Hatley at Crump 
Stadium. A study of the list of opponents will quickly reveal the reason behind the 
heavy loss-column. 




At the basketball games the Memorial Gymnasium was 
crowded to overflowing for all the ten home contests. 
And the Tigers under Dr. Gene Lembert drew as well 
away from Memphis. 

The ROTC color guard was presented at the start of 
each home contest to add to the ceremonies.

season the Memphis State cheerleaders did 
their best to lead the students in yelling for 
the Tigers. And they did a fine job, too. 



At the final basketball game on the home 
court President J. M. Smith presented gold 
megaphones to Bob Trantham and Marty 
Perry for two years' work. Letters were won 
by the above and Barbara Haynes, who 
served during football season. 



Thousands joined in cheering at basketball tilts. 



Action is high at football games. 





Famed Tiger Club Flag 



Sports at Memphis State played an important role in the 
life of each student during the past year. 

Thousands witnessed the basketball and football games 
and at each encounter the Tiger Club flag played its role. 
The photographer snapped the above picture as the Tiger 
was preparing to take off for more nourishment — "A Tiger 
never outgrows the need of milk, you know." 

At right Coach Ralph Hatley keeps an alert eye on the 
boys out on the field — wonder how many miles he walked 
at Crump Stadium during the home season? 

Just to prove it isn't all glory and kisses from admirers 
the pictures below are printed — some folks way up in the 
stands can't see all that goes on at the bench. And occasion- 
ally there are those who must be carried off the field — 
usually the result of their own fine playing, getting in on 
each action and playing for all the game, second by second.

COURAGEOUS TIGERS LOSE 

Playing in the NCAA basketball tournament for the 
second straight year the Tigers went down to defeat, 
97-81, at the hands of Oklahoma City University in Tour- 
nament play at Wichita, Kansas. 

Forced to play without Wilfong, Forest and Orby Ar- 
nold, Ken Caldwell and Jimmy Hockaday because of 
NCAA rules on freshmen and four-year men, the Tigers 
neverthless put on a great show, leading the favored team 
until the last seven minutes of play. At halftime the Lam- 
bertmen were ahead, 41-33, and held on until height 
and full-team strength of the Oklahoma five told on the 
Tigers. MSC went to the tournament with only eight play- 
ers, Ballard, Jones, and Doyle joining the team for the 
tournament.

National fame has been brought to Memphis State College in recent 
years through the successful basketball coaching job performed by 
Dr. Eugene Lambert — truly a fine gentleman and a master of the game. 

Dr. "'Gene" came to Memphis State for the 1951-52 season and has 
built his teams up each year. During the current year his team drew 
capacity-plus crowds, both at home and away. 

During his first year at MSC. his men won 25 and lost 10. The 
1952-53 season was one devoted to building and the 10 victories in 24 
contests showed that emphasis was on years ahead. The next year 
the team won 15. lost 9. and the 1954-55 season brought 17 victories 
with only 4 setbacks. In the NCAA tournament the team went out 
59-55 to Penn State. 

1955-56 has been another successful season, with more victories 
and another chance at the National Collegiate Athletic Association 
tournament. 

Coach Lambert was assisted by Norman Sloan, who came to the 
college from Presbyterian College in Clinton. S.C. While a coach there 
his teams won 70. lost 33. and played in the NAIA eliminations.

Century Mark Shattered 

Three times during the first four games the Tigers passed

scoring team in the nation. 

Win Wilfong led the opening attack gainst Union, rack- 
ing up Id points as the Lambertmen won. L38-70.

season with an <">l-il win over fexas \\M before a stand-

The next home game saw a new scoring record estab- 
lished with Forest Arnold putting in 46 counters as the 
Tigers defeated Hardin-Simmons 102-52. 

And again the 100-mark fell as Mississippi Southern be- 
came victims, 112-76. before the Arnold-led MSC quintet.

Rallies Bring Victories . . . 

The Tigers went on their first extensive tour of the 
season in mid-December and came home with ,wins over 
Hardin-Simmons, Texas Western and Arizona. 

Victory in Abilene over Hardin-Simmons was sweet, 
75-73. but the Tigers' high-scoring record went by the 
wayside. MSC trailed until last minute of play, when Wil- 
fong tied the score and Scott and Fortner made free throws 
to win. 

A closer decision came two days later, when the Tigers 
won 71-70 over Texas Western in El Paso. Four free shots 
in the last two minutes by Fortner brought home the vic- 
tory. 

Another rally was necessary in Tucson as the Tigers 
came up to a tie with 10 seconds to play, and went ahead 
to win in overtime, 98-92. 

Home ground looked good as the Tigers came back to 
meet Northwestern Louisiana and easily win 112-79 before 
another capacity crowd.

Second in Senior Bowl 
Tournament 

After rallying to defeat Miami of Florida, 79-71, the 
Tigers fell to Spring Hill, 69-65, in the Senior Bowl Tourna- 
ment at Mobile in January. The Tigers, at the time rated 
12th in the nation, were a bit sluggish in the contests. 

Spring Hill trailed 63-48 with seven minutes left, but 
struck for 21 points while the Tigers scored only one field 
goal on the way. 

Western Kentucky dropped in for a contest, and went 
away on the short end of a 80-64 score after an overflow 
crowd packed the field house. The Tigers hit the comeback 
trial in fine fashion, coming from behind to lead 37-34 at 
the half, and pulled away from the visitors in the last half. 

A trip to Jonesboro netted a 74-64 win over Arkansas 
State but the Tiger rooters lost the flag as they were out- 
numbered by the 4,000 Arkansans present.

Top, right, Western Kentucky finds the local boys have little trouble 
hitting the basket with Wilfong here getting another two points. 
Below, Fortner, in the same tilt, manages to keep one from going 
outside, and at same time rings up a counter. Below, left, Arnold 
goes up for a score and at right he's way off the floor to intercept 
the ball. Both pictures are from the Western Kentucky game.

More Victories Scored . . . 

Wilfong scored 29 points but the MSC five went down 
85-75 before Louisville, 10th ranked team in the nation. 
Some 5.000 saw the tilt in Louisville. 

But" the Tigers came back in fine fashion to nip Wash- 
ington University, 73-71, on the second game of the week- 
end road trip. Forest Arnold hit 22 points while brother 
Orby dropped in 20 before a large delegation from their 
home town of Puxico, Mo., who came to St. Louis to see 
the contest. 

The basketball team did what the football boys couldn't, 
and came out with a 105-73 victory over visiting Missis- 
sippi State before an "awfully crowded" group of rooters. 
The team averaged 53% on field shots during the night. 

Arkansas State returned to Memphis, brought along 
money to replace the "lost" flag, but could do nothing else 
and suffered a 97-67 setback from the forces of Dr. Gene 
Lambert.

Action was fierce in the Hardin-Simmons tilt as these pictures 
indicate. At top, Wilfong finds the going tough under the basket 
as he seeks to score two points. Below, Arnold practically follows 
the ball through the basket as he drops in a goal. At left, bottom, 
it's all action on both sides as players seek the basketball and at 
right, Scott finds plenty of visitors present as he jumps for a shot 
at the basket.

Tigers Defeat West Virginia 

The Tigers gained nationwide attention in West Virginia 
on a two-game road trip to the frozen north I>\ defeating 
the strong five in Morgantown. 84-69. Credit for victory 
was given to the team that "outhustled, outrebounded and 
finally outshot the Mountaineers." The guarding of "Hot- 
Rod" Hundlev by Fortner was an outstanding feature. 

But the cold was too much for the Tigers in Buffalo, as 
they fell unexpected victims to St. Bonaventure. 79-67. 

Home ground looked good again as the Tigers returned 
to score a 96-77 victory over Tennessee Tech. Earlier lhe\ 
had won. 106-72. over Murray Slate before another packed 
house.

Murray State fought well in Memphis hut failed to halt Forest 
Arnold in his scoring spree. In picture helow, Arnold and Coaches 
Lambert and Sloan pause for the National Anthem before the 
game started. Arkansas State College president and student body- 
president came to Memphis and gave the Tiger Club $50 to pay 
for a "lost" flag that "disappeared" in Jonesboro several weeks 
before. In lower left, MSC accepts the money with pleasure. At 
right, bottom, Fortner goes after the ball in a fast drive down 
the court.

Tivo More Victories, Two More Setbacks 

Memphis State invaded Ohio-land in mid-February and suffered a 85-71 
setback at the hands of the high-flying Dayton Flyers, No. 2 team in the 
nation. While 5.500 watched, the Tigers took an early lead which they held 
for more than a quarter. The Tigers did lead in rebounding, having 44 
compared to 42 for Dayton. 

Centenary journeyed to Memphis and suffered a setback to the tune of 
101-82, with Forest Arnold, Wilfong and Caldwell all scoring 20 or better 
during the evening. This game ended a 16-game winning record marked 
up by the visitors. 

Cookeville proved another Waterloo for the Tigers, with Tennessee Tech 
grabbing a 90-81 victory before a "wildly cheering crowd" there. Memphis 
State went ahead 49-42 at the half but could not hold on as the locals 
went scoring crazy the final minutes of the game. The win was Tech's 10th 
straight on their home court. 

A large delegation of fans followed the Tigers to Murray, -Kentucky, to 
see one of the most exciting contests of the season. After the score went 
back and forth many times the Tigers managed to come home with a vic- 
tory — 100-94, and for the eighth time during the season scored 100 or 
better. Scoring honors were widely shared with six players marking up 10 
or more points.

At Murray State, the Arnold brothers find it is crowded around the basket, but 
Forest puts one in nevertheless. Wilfong overcame the Centenary opposition and went 
high enough for another score in the final home game. Forest Arnold shows the 
boys at Murray why he has scored so many points this year as he takes the jump 
ball. Scott and Caldwell are ready to give Wilfong some help in the Centenary tilt in 
lower right. 





Salute to Seniors 




Fortner. short hut fast, shot and outran the opposition. 




Three outstanding college basketball play- 
ers brought their collegiate careers to a close 
at Memphis State this spring. 

Forest Arnold played four fine years for 
the Tigers, scoring hundreds of points to aid 
the team in scoring victory after victory. He 
played both the center and the guard spots. 

Elmore Fortner, one of the smallest play- 
ers on the team, was also one of the fastest. 
He was constantly "on the go" and seldom 
did an opposing player outrun him or out- 
shoot him. He played guard. 

Ken Caldwell, another guard, was 
another fine player who really came 
into his own as the season neared its- 
end. His ability to hit the long shots 
caused the opposition much trouble. 

All three seniors were given a 
standing ovation in the final home 
game as nearly 4,000 fans yelled 
their hearts out to show their appre- 
ciation for the fine work done. 



Caldwell went up plenty high to jump over the other team to score. 



Forest Arnold scored hundreds of points and did a fine job on taking rebounds under the basket. 





Assistant basketball coach Norman Sloan replaced successful A. L. 
Allen as track mentor for the 1956 season. Allen resigned his position after 
last year's undefeated cinder season. 

The coach departed, along with a few seniors on the '55 squad, but a 
strong contingent of lettermen returned to make this year's outlook appear 
promising. 

Joe Gorham, (leading scorer last year with 143 points), who recorded 
times of 23.2 in the low hurdles and 14.6 in the high hurdles, leads the 
returning lettermen, which include Neal Doyle, Don Pemberton, DeWayne 
Bolton, Dave Griffith, Jim Mathis, James Thomas, and Don McLeod.

First place in intramural football went to Kappa Alpha. 



Winners in their league. Kappa Sigmas were runners-up for 
school intramural title in football. 




ZACK CURLIN 

Mens Intramural Director 



Providing a break in routine, intramural athletics at Memphis State strive 
to teach the average student sportsmanship and clean play, besides giving 
him an opportunity to reach and retain top physical condition. Intramural 
athletics at Memphis State for 1955-56 were an enormous success. 

Leading off the intramural program, Kappa Alpha edged Kappa Sigma 
for the football title. Both teams were winners of their respective leagues. 
The Independents spoiled Kappa Alpha's chances of winning two titles by 
repeating as intramural basketball kings. 

For the first time in school history, Memphis State turned out a boxing 
team for competition in the Golden Gloves tournaments. Light heavyweight 
Charles Sorsby and heavyweight Johnny Shepard gave the school its first 
titles. Johnny Franklin battled his way into the finals before losing. 

Another inside sport was volleyball. First place went to the Veterans, 
while Kappa Sigma was runner-up. Most popular sport on the spring sched- 
ule is softball.

Coaches George Johnson (left) and Frankie Dial (right) explain 
finer points to George Clinton. Charles Sorsby, and Johnny

Intramurals 




Independent Men took basketball title for 
second consecutive year. 



Second best in intramural basketball race 
was Kappa Alpha. 



Through the ropes goes Sorsby's opponent. Sorsby went on to 
win Mid-South title in novice division. 





Intramurals 



A mad dash for the wire is typical of May Day activities which highlight 
the intramural vear. 



Powder puffs are a thing long since forgotten 
when Memphis State coeds take part in their di- 
vision of the intramural program. Kicking off the 
school year, Alpha Delta Pi won honors in volley- 
ball, edging out YWCA. 

Girls' basketball followed with a round robin 
schedule, followed by a double elimination tourna- 
ment which continued into the Spring. 




ELMA ROANE 

Women's Intramural Director 



More May Day action. 




Spring activities are plentiful in women's intra- 
murals. Badminton, archery, shuffleboard, horse- 
shoes, tennis and golf afford a variety of ways 
for coeds to enjoy themselves during the final 
stages of the school year. 

Climax of the intramural year is May Day. 
Miss Elma Roane, director of the women's intra- 
mural program, busies herself with schedules and 
directing these activities throughout the school 
year.

Kappa Alpha Fraternity won first place 



Kappa Sigma Fraternity came in second 



In a red-hot intramural football program during the fall, the Kappa Alphas won the 
Tuesday League competition while the Kappa Sigs won the Monday League race. In the 
playoff, Kappa Alphas came out on top. 

Runnerup in the Monday League was the Lambda Chi Alpha team, while three teams 
tied for second in the Tuesday League: Sigma Phi Epsilon, Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon. 

All Stars of the Intramural Football League included Lackey McCoy, KA, back; Joe 
Stalls, PiKA, back; Jack McDowell, KA. back; Tom Colwell, KSig, guard; Gilford 
Taylor, SPE, end; Jim Mathis, KA, end; Wink Martindale, KSig, back; Jim Rober- 
son, SPE, center; and Gene Williams, Lambda Chi, guard. 



Anxiety is the keynote on this play- 
what's next? 



There's plenty of action and excitement when the fraternities meet on the intramural 
football field, as shown in these fine pass plays. 





Alpha Delta Pi Sorority won volleyball championship 



Intramural 
Volleyball 

First place in the girls' division of the intramural 
volleyball season was won by Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. 
The girls defeated the YWGA team for the champion- 
ship trophy. 

Members of the All-Star team were Carolyn Hewlett, 
ADPi; Shirley Flint and Pat Baskin, YWCA; Carolyn 
Gore, ADPi; Barbara Dowd Alpha Gamma Delta; 
Doris Ellison, Alpha Xi Delta; Paula Hicks, and Billie 
Chiles, Delta Zeta, and Francine Trantham, Dormitory. 







Vets score first in men's division 



Kappa Sigs' team came in second in the race. 



A fired up Veterans Club blasted the Kap- 
pa Sigma Fraternity two straight games to 
capture the 1955-56 intramural volleyball 
championship. 

The Vets showed championship form in 
posting their two victories by 15-5 and 15-10 
scores. Others close in the race were the Inde- 
pendents and Sigma Phi Epsilon.

COACHES 




Memphis State's 2-7 record for the 1955 foot- 
ball campaign does not Begin to tell the Jrue ston 
of the Tigers" pigskin fortunes. 

After eight seasons under the Tennessee single 
wing formation. Coach Ralph Hatley switched 
to the more popular Split- 



»ffe 



nse. 



Th 



e reason.* 



for this switch were simple. First, the high school 

more fa- 



alent enrolling at Memphis State were 



T of- 



miliar with the new style. Second, the Split- 1 oi 
fense is simple to leach and does not require as 
much time dining practice session-. 

T ake matter- worse, the Tiger- faced the 

toughest schedule known in the histon of Memphis 
State football. Three Southeastern teams spiced a 
schedule which included a conference champion 
from Texas and three of the top independent clubs 
in this section. 

OnK five seniors—Gerald Hush. Larr\ Wright. 
Dave Griffith. Joe Billings and John Meibaum- 
depart from this squad, making prospects for next 
season look brighter. 

A fine crop of freshmen enrolling next fall will 
eagerly take up where the veterans left off. and. 
with a year's experience in the new offense under 
their belts, the Tigers are looking optimistic all) 
toward the future.

DeSoto Beauty Judge . . . 

The famous New York model and beauty ex- 
pert really was in the beauty business. Not only 
was Miss Jones beauty advisor to Maid of Cotton 
contestants in January, but at the same time she 
gave her valuable time to select Memphis State's 
56 beauties. 

Each DeSoto contestant was asked to submit 
two photographs, one formal and the other in- 
formal. Miss Jones was asked to select the Queen 
and her court from among these photos. 

We hope Miss Jones chose your favorite. 



Her favorite? and ours!

Sarah Hornsby was selected as Junior Justice of the Student Government. 

Gamma Etas were not too busy to take an active part in other campus events. 
Betty Jean Lauderdale was named Football Queen. Ann Lippitt was chosen Sweet- 
heart of SAE Fraternity, and Sarah Hornsby was chosen Kappa Alpha Rose. Another 
sweetheart selected was Nan Ingram of Delta Sigma Pi. Jackie Edwards was elected

Sigma Kappa, one of the oldest of all national sororities, was founded in 1874 at 
Colley College. Waterville. Maine. Beta Xi chapter came to Memphis State in 1947. 

The school year 1955-56 has been busy for Beta Xis, who participated in many 
activities and social events. The chapter won first prize in the Homecoming float com- 
petition, sponsored an All-Student dance in honor of the pledges, gave a formal 
banquet honoring sorority founders. The annual formal was held May 19, at which 
the new officers were presented. 

Beta Xi had three of its members, Kitty Barner. Linda Cole, and Anne McGrew, 
selected as varsity cheerleaders. 

Members and pledges were not too busy to take part in philanthropic activities. 
The pledge class adopted the Mary Galloway home for its local philanthropy and 
entertained several times for the ladies. The active chapter made contributions to its 
national philanthropies, the Maine Seacoast mission and the Greek Farm School.

The 1955-56 school year will be remembered by the Beta Omegas of Alpha Xi 
Delta as a very exciting one. Rush season brought us 24 new pledges after a series 
of parties such as the "Old South Party, 1 ' "The Flapper Party," and the traditional 
Rose Tea. The parties were followed up by a candlelight ceremony initiating our 
pledges. 

The actives entertained their little sisters with an informal dance at Forset Hill 
Lodge in November. The pledges entertained the actives with a "Mardi Gras" Party 
at Oak Park Lodge in January. April brought two memorable occasions — the cele- 
bration of Founder's Day and the annual Quill Ball. 

Many honors came to the Beta Omegas this year. Among them were first place 
in the Delta Zeta Follies; first place in the Speech Intramurals; and first place in 
the All-Sing, in which we sang "A Tribute To Memphis State" written by Iva Carol 
Smith, our President.

Three '56 Memphis State queens also wear the Delta Zeta lamp. Betty Jane Winter 
was chosen Freshman; Wanda Martin reigned over Homecoming; and Totsy Dodson 
captured the DeSoto beauty title. 

Beauty, however, was not the only point of emphasis for Gamma Iotas. Ruchie 
Watkins, Kay Pitts, and Mary Ann Furlotte took their places in "Who's Who." Kay 
also added "Hall of Fame" to her credit. 

Singing took the wheel for a time, with DZ's winning third place in All-Sing and 
Ruchie singing the female lead in MSC's annual opera, "Lohengrin." The chapter 
turned amateur theatrical producer during the oth annual DZ Follies, directed by 
Judy Crainer. 

Always ready for a party, Delta Zeta enjoyed several informal parties and slumber 
parties. In October, the Founders' Day banquet was held. The highlight of the 
season was the "Rosebud Ball" held in April honoring the new officers.

April, 1955, saw the beginning of Memphis 
State's newest sorority, Alpha Epsilon, a colony 
of the national organization Alpha Epsilon Phi. 

The 1955-56 school year was composed of a 
multitude of firsts for the Alpha Epsilons. We had 
our first rush party, initiation and as a highlight 
of the year our first dinner dance held in Febru- 
ary in honor of our new members. 

A primary aim of the group throughout the year 
was to become an integral part of campus life. 
We participated in Intramurals, furnished a Home- 
coming display, and ushered for All-Sing. 

The Alpha Epsilons feel that we have accom- 
plished a great deal during this year and will 
continue to be an active and growing group on 
Memphis State's Campus.

Euparthenes, founded October, 1950, is 
the "Stray Greek" organization at Memphis 
State College. It has as its purpose uniting 
girls on this campus who belong to national 
Greek social sororities not represented at 
Memphis State. 

The year was very successful for the 
"Stray Greeks." We worked hard on the 
Homecoming float and were very proud of 
Myrna Cole and Frances Lyons on being 
chosen to the DeSoto Beauty Court. 

The most outstanding activity of the Spring 
semester was our "Project of the Month" 
series.

Gamma Gamma Chapter of the Kappa Alpha Order was chartered on Memphis 
State's campus October 2, 1948. The members and pledges are enjoying the third 
year in the chapter's house. It is the only fraternity house at Memphis State and is 
owned by Gamma Gamma Chapter. 

One of the most enjoyable events at the house was the Christmas Party held for 
25 children of Porter Leath Orphanage. Entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus 
was provided by Chapter members. 

The Old South Ball and the Black and White Ball were the highlights of Gamma 
Gamma's social functions. The finest Southern traditions prevailed at the fifth annual 
Old South Ball and at the Black and White Ball that dates back over a quarter of a 
century. At a costume party given for the members by the pledges, George Jennings 
and Betty Brown won first place dressed as the Old Gold dancing twins.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity was founded by eight men at the University of 
Alabama, March 9, 1856. SAE has since grown to 139 chapters in 46 states with a 
membership of 90,000. Tennessee Sigma Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was 
installed at Memphis State College November 14, 1953. 

The season was started with two highly successful parties, one for rush and the 
other in honor of the new pledges. The outstanding social events of the season are 
the annual "Wild West" party in March and the Formal Ball in May, which was 
entitled "King Kotton's Kollege Kaper's." The Sigma Alpha Epsilon sweetheart, 
Miss Anne Lippitt, was presented at the "Kaper's." 

SAE's are proud to claim Jere White, Vice President of Student Government as 
one of their own.

Epsilon Pi chapter of Kappa Sigma was granted a charter on the Memphis State 
campus on May 28. 1950, eighty-one years after the National founding of Kappa 
Sigma at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869. by "five friends and 
brothers." 

This chapter continues to gain recognition as producing the leaders of the Memphis 
State campus by holding such offices as President of the senior and sophomore 
classes, vice president of the junior and sophomore classes, a member of the Supreme 
Court, the Supreme Court Justice, and "Mr. Fabulous" of the sophomore class to 
mention a few. 

Intramurally, we finished second in forensics, football, volleyball, and All-Sing 
and are well underway to winning the Intramural trophy. 

The Stardust Ball honoring our lovely sweetheart, Miss Barbara Beaty, was the 
climax of our social year. The annual Harem Ball continued to be one of the gayest, 
most popular events on the school calendar.

Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at the University of Virginia by six men whose 

idea was to form a brotherhood which would preserve the priceless friendships and 

joys of college. Delta Zeta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha came to Memphis State 
December 7, 1947. 

Pi K A began this year in a big way with one of the largest and finest pledge 
classes on the campus. The Pikes captured the coveted Cub Club trophy for the 
most outstanding float in the Homecoming parade. 

The men of the Dagger and Key have long been noted for their charitable acts, 
this year providing a family of four with a complete Christmas and food for several 
weeks. Pike is also the first fraternity to offer a scholarship to a Freshman. This year 
the scholarship went to Jim Green, a graduate of Messick High School. 

The social events of the fraternity began in July with a series of rush parties. 
A reception was given in honor of the new pledges and their parents in November. 

The main social event of the year was the Dream Girl Ball held in April.

The Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, was founded at Boston College in November, 
1909. It was founded by a group of law students and was originally known as the 
Metropolitan Law Club. Since that time it has grown into one of the largest national 
fraternities in the country with 148 chapters and three colonies. Lambda Chi Alpha 
colonized at Memphis State in May, 1948, and a year later received a charter as 
the Zeta Theta Chapter. 

The Lambda Chis were busy this past year taking part in Homecoming, Stunt 
Night, Intramurals, and All-Sing. It was the Lambda Chis who initiated the tug-of- 
war craze to the campus. 

Lambda Chi had a very successful social season. Following rush the Harvest Moon 
Ball was held in honor of the pledges. In March the Founders' Day Celebration was 
held, a record party, a banquet, and a formal dance was held in honor of the 
occasion. The highlight of the dance was the crowning of Miss Patty Sue Davis as

The Tennessee Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon can look with pride on its 
achievements of the 1955-56 school year. 

The Sig Eps came through the Speech Intramurals with its second consecutive 
first place victory. The annual All-Sing, a highlight of MSC activities, was won by 
the Sig Eps for the third consecutive year. Sig Ep proved to be a stiff competitor in 
the intramural sports, taking third place in football and third place in volleyball. 

Socially the annual '49er Party at the Theatrical Arts Club was a great success. 
The "Queen of Hearts Ball" on March 2 climaxed a thrilling year for Sigma Phi 
Epsilon.
